Located about 8k out of Marrakech the hotel provides a free bus to and from the city subject to pre booking at reception. Taxis are £8 daytime, £12 at night. The hotel has very attractive garden areas with palm trees, cactii, flowers and lavender - a pity that there are no benches to sit and enjoy the peace.
The rooms are in blocks a short walk from the main building and although I would query wether they are 5 star as we know it, they are perfectly fine, especially for the good deal we got from Travel Zoo. The shower is excellent, the bed comfortable and there is a fridge, kettle ,small patio and air con. There is also daily maid service so no complaints. However, our first room smelled distinctly of poo - after a day with no improvement we were moved to another room - the hotel was obviously not full.
The breakfast buffet was very good with excellent breads, an egg man for freshly cooked eggs omelettes and pancakes plus boiled eggs,cereals,juices,harira ( a tomatoe and lentil based soup) and other hot food. There are also freshly cooked donuts with chocolate sauce. Coffee is plentiful although you may have to take your cup to be filled rather than expecting quick table service.
We were not all - inclusive but tried the evening meal - it was a dissapointment for approximately £25 per person.and we either ate in the city or at the pool cafe for their excellent chicken ceasar salad with bread chips and beer( about £12)
The pool was very good with excellent parasols - ask an attendant to unfold it for you. Towels are available from 9am but beds are nabbed well before then.
The ambience in the hotel is of cool and quiet with good quality fittings and decor but there is not much to do at night. Drinks in the bar are quite expensive but at least there is free Wi Fi.
Both my wife and I agreed we would certainly come back here again and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
